Indications & Dosage of Suprefact Injection
Suprefact Injection is indicated in the palliative treatment of advanced prostate cancer. The medication is not intended to cure the disease, but only treats the symptoms and provides relief to a patient with advanced prostate cancer.
Buserelin, the main active ingredient in the medication, is a synthetic analog of luteinizing-hormone-releasing-hormone (LHRH). Chronic administration of Buserelin in the body suppresses the pituitary gonadotropins, which play an important role in release of LH from the pituitary gland and subsequent production of testosterone in men. This action of the drug helps in reducing the production of testosterone in men, which is known to stimulate the growth of prostate cancer.
Suprefact Injection is administered by a trained medical professional or by a doctor in a clinic or hospital setting. The usual recommended dose of Suprefact Injection is 0.5mL, 3 times daily at 8 hour intervals. The duration of treatment is 7 days.
